See what our customers say about Hunters Yate & Chipping Sodbury team:

Sharon was our absolute rock and we truly believe that if it wasn't for her we wouldn't be in our new home now. Ours wasn’t an easy journey but she kept us informed every step of the way & remained very professional even when we all felt we were hitting a brick wall. Her communication was amazing & if she wasn't available when I telephoned the office she returned the calls almost immediately. She went above and beyond to help us. I would definitely recommend Hunters and if I could rate more than 5 stars I would.
